Nassau County, which includes Long Island, has much to offer seniors. Museum Row is the ideal place for history and art enthusiasts, while Americana Manhasset provides a unique shopping destination. Nassau County currently has around 360,000 residents who are age 60 and older, and the number of seniors is growing rapidly. The county expects to see 19.7% of its population to be age 60 and older by 2040. To help its aging population, the county has many services to assist seniors in living independently at home.

Seniors who choose to remain at home during their retirement may need assistance. Home care includes basic homemaker services and costs an average of $4,957 in Nassau County, according to the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. The cost for home health care, which includes some light medical care, is the same. This is higher than the national averages of $4,481 for home care and $4,576 for home health care.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Nassau County, so data for the closest city, New York, was used.

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
